The Ten Rules of Being a Shadowhunter

1. tell everyone who asks “ARE JACE AND CLARY RELATED?!??!?!?!” Yes. You tell them YES.

2. if someone asks for no spoilers, you spam them with fake spoilers.

3. ALWAYS accept that Jamie is Jace

4. love and respect your parabatai as if you were really Jem and Will.

5. you MUST shout incest at the cinema screen when Clace kiss to confuse some bitches.

6. when someone dies, you say Ave Atque Vale.

7. always support Simons band. No matter how shit it is.

8. always look better in black than the widows of your enemies.

9. always ask Jace if you can touch his mangoes.

10. nothing less than 7 inches.

Unofficial* 11. yank on Valentine’s ponybraid if you see him. It makes him squeal.

I found that on Cassandra Clare's tumblr xD


Want to talk? Send a PM! I love connecting with my readers, and writers in general.


Let's all go back to our first story. You'd signed up for your account, waited patiently for the waiting period before new users could post stories. And then, finally, you hit the post story button, and waited. Don't we all remember how excited we were when we checked the review count and see we'd actually gotten a review. We didn't even care if it was a three word "Good chapter, update." (even though we wished for more.) And as the reviews came in, you felt that smile creep across your face. The excitement (however small) you get when you see the review count go up is always enjoyable.

Are we really so cruel as to deny someone that feeling? It only takes five minutes tops. Join the revolution, take the pledge and paste this onto your profile.

I, aftertales, pledge to always try to thoughtfully review every chapter of every story I read. I pledge to not leave flames and only offer advice. I pledge to raise the review count, one chapter at a time.

I hope to become a serious author one day, writing my own books with my own characters. This is a start for my writing career; please leave a review and tell me how I'm doing. It takes just a few seconds and makes my day :)

The lost ones by AWanderingSoulSometimesLost reviews
Unlike her brothers and twin sister, Jamie Lightwood has never thought of Jace Wayland as of her brother. He's her best friend, the one she'd give up everything for and who feels the same way about her. But, when he starts to seriously fall for another girl, Jamie finds herself torn between worry for Jace and jealousy of the girl who's taking him away from her. I don't own TMI.
